Model simulation of hydrodynamics and phytoplankton dynamics during three contrasting summers in Lake Nieuwe Meer (the Netherlands)
Top panels show the temperature contour plots. The second row shows contour plots of the turbulent diffusivities. The third row shows the surface concentrations of Microcystis (solid lines) and the depth-integrated population size of Microcystis (dashed lines). The fourth row shows the surface concentrations of diatoms (orange lines) and green algae (green lines). Note the difference in scale between the Microcystis concentrations (third row) and the concentrations of diatoms and green algae (fourth row).
